To sell with Pildora, a brand must meet our sustainability standards. When evaluating a brand to determine whether it’s a good fit, we start with the three E’s: Environmental, Ethical, and Economical. These checkpoints help us identify brands that align directly to our marketplace’s mission.
The global designer interview and discovery process is one that is handled with detail and care. Designers receive an initial questionnaire, which evaluates key sustainable items. These include the brand’s environmental efforts, production process, material sourcing, fair trade practices, waste management, and overall transparency. Pildora also asks for documentation and/or footage of workplaces and factories as supporting evidence of ethical working conditions.
Pildora goes beyond being just a marketplace. We work with our designers to continue improving sustainability practices and overall sellability. We uphold our sustainable mission by creating a conversation with designers who are already making tremendous sustainable efforts, while guiding others to a more sustainable future. Once Pildora is confident our values are aligned with a brand and we can attest to their sustainable efforts, designers are officially Pildora verified and ready to sell.
